Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need any foundation paper piecing experience before participating?

Experience is good, but not necessary. The Drop is a pretty easy FPP pattern; it's not particularly intricate. That being said, I'll be working through the entire process with beginners in mind, so you'll definitely get all the information you'll need to be successful! If you've signed up for the Ships & Violins general newsletter, you can give The Drop pillow pattern a shot. It'll give you an idea of what you'll be doing for the larger project.

I've purchased the pattern, but the timing doesn't work for me. Will I still have access to the weekly newsletters?

I recommend that you sign up for the weekly newsletters as usual, and store them for when you're ready to begin making The Drop quilt.  

*Participants will be limited to winning one prize.

The countdown to our next adventure begins!
Happy Quilting,
